3:00 am
consent calendar resolution severed for board resolution i believe one t is severed it's been so long ago k 33. >> thank you. >> so colleagues agency you know this is the extension for the rest of this fiscal year of the contract with the friends of the school the arts to be the fiscal arts for the focus artists. i have questioned this contract every year and had concerns. now, it's been shared by many of you, we need to do this work ourselves. not only do we need to do but we do it for the elementary artists
3:01 am
and lots of other people and so we have - i did bring this up again specifically not prior to the beginning of the school year we would have granted this contract annual so last spring i brought this up and said you know we've been working on this but not done anything about it don't bring it back or at least we can look into it and have the apparent reality we have to pay people who work for us. so we've worked on that. i appreciate the staff diligence and work and know it's complicated so for that reason we split the contract and we did
3:02 am
half of this is the second half but i want to ask sprrptd lee to talk about the process and to be clear we're not intending to do this in subject years but because of this comments and anxiety of the school of the arts we have it. i appreciate president norway to be and others this is no way recommendati recommendation. so mr. lee could you tell us the status >> so commissioner winn said this issue has been brought up as an important question for the
3:03 am
board and for the district staff to examine. and we've taken a close look at the curre the curre the current range time. it was back in 2010 that the arrangement with respect to the artist and residents that are fund from district resources were contracted. a long story short we've reached a recommendation and shared it with the superintendant we should with the appropriate transition time transition the responsibilities for at least with respect to the district resources that are funding of the artists and resident contracts that those contracts should be anything congratulated
3:04 am
balk back to the district beau not because of the business stylists that you know shouldn't be taking place but as a general matter of carrying out our fiduciary responsibility. we think it's consistent with the other duties we execute as commissioner winn just said. we've let the school community know and leadership know we would like to do that and having said that. there are a number of transition activities that that would involve. including entering into new arraignments directly with the artists themselves and giving them goinoinz and get the
3:05 am
background checks and we need to provide the time to make sure this doesn't disrupt the services to the students or plaza hardship on the artists. we recommend we take the rest of the year we think it is necessary to take the rest of the year to clarify how that should be done and work with the artist and the school community to make sure we do that in a careful way. we intended to get started in a few weeks. part of that involves trying to be clear with the school community about the motivation to transition those responsibility back to the district.
3:06 am
this is not based on anything they've done wrong but more a of a general issue to take the responsibilities back into our own office. i'm working with doctor to understand why it's happening and to provide the assurance. >> i'd like to make a request that we provide for the community some kind of communication a memo some letter that puts in writing our intention clearly. there seems to have been a somewhat mixed message there about motivation and intention of doing this.
3:07 am
i'm interested in making sure we have a clear message and we do something official to communicate to the school community. >> and we will definitely do this commissioner. >> yes. dr. >> i want to support that representations from commissioner winn's. i think we've received panicky letters and i want to go on record i'm supportive of the artists and residents program. increase an issue of fairness folks raise money to support positions that are required by the district to put it into a trust fund. so i think it's important that the district have the capacity to do the work. >> i just wanted to quickly ask
3:08 am
about the required insurance. is that something they had to have when they weren't under our coverage now that wore taking and requiring them to have the insurance under friends of? >> that's correct. >> and that's all paid for by them. >> those are some of the specific details that we need to work through with the all the stakeholders involved including the principle and a clarifying the specifics to the artists themselves. for the last 3 years friends of the school of the arts have a intermediate nonprofit has arranged for the requirement we
3:09 am
require on above the artists and residents. so by us contracting directly with the artists themselves that will not be an option so we will have to work with the artists to give them gowns on specifically go what insurance they need to arrange for. >> this is a requirement for example, the emergency room artists have to have we talk about that. >> so are we ready to vicinity open the item. okay roll call on item 33. (calling names)
3:10 am
. 6 i's. >> superintendents first reading. board members proposals for boards first reading. may i have a voided on after student programs >> this item is referred to the budget and a curriculum committee. and so moving on wool now at item f board minutes reports. i want to remind board members we have closed session we need to go into after this. report from the ad hoc committee
3:11 am
>> yeah. thank you very much. we had an ad hoc committee on personal matters the the highlights of the executive summary 21 percent of the teachers quite after one year of teaching. half of the teachers will not be in the district after 5 years. 60 to 80 percent have teachers are leaving voluntarily. the african-american teachers is significantly lover after the first year of teacher is only 56 percent and traverses in special education teaching experience among the lottery translates
3:12 am
among the subject groups. the number have teachers losses 4 hundred and 41 teachers leave the district and 1 hundred and 19 traverses are retired. 90 percent - it costs the district approximately between 10 and $20,000 each time a teacher leaves our district. it w it was certificate retention. >> all right. from the select committee. >> at the. so we had two presentations one was with from - jim ryan's our director of stem and he came and
3:13 am
spoke specifically about all the different things we've doing under the stem umbrella. and we have another presentation about the initiative and all the work around updating the technology and the stem under that initiative as well >> thank you. all right. dr. report from the curriculum and a program committee month to month of november >> i reported we had two forgotten items one was expending the school day. we asked staff to calculate was it would cost to move to a 7 period day in high school and superintendent lee provide a rough analyzed that raged from 13 and a half million to 17
3:14 am
million to introduce the 7 day. i was encouraged we're not talking about 2 hundred and 3 hundred million it's somewhere in the neighborhood of 13 to 17 million. so as we look at an improved budget or look at new money from the state i really hope to prioritize a 7 period day in order to help our students who need to recover credits but those students who want to take more than one elective to cope in school. we horde on update on our core waiver certificate. the next meeting will be monday, december 2nd. will be the next meeting of the curriculum committee and we'll
3:15 am
be hearing from our court and county schools for commissioner haney >> i just want to because the superintendant is going to say it we're not referring to the core but the ask the quality system. i've heard the core waiver to be abandoned so that's the last time those words will be uttered in this room. so moving right long commissioner winn will be update us. >> the only action yawned was the creative charter. we have one on the improved k solution. in our last meeting we talked
3:16 am
about if the firm we used and if the information is useful at all and have a standing meeting for the purpose of trying to build a base of knowledge among the board members about the issues related to the local control funding formula. so we discussed actually, the proposed regulations for that were submitted to the board of ed and the boards mission keeping them white and i think that was the following day that the state board of ed met with a very strong prevention of advocates asking for far more
3:17 am
specific regulations in other words. so steps were recategorizing money that was made part of the lcff something we're not supportive of. the bad news is the stated board of ed they kind of said to the staff okay. let's look at this. i will be discussing in two days with the spc a people how management representatives east will be responding to that and i'll be reporting think that. we did on talk about how we would update not only the regulations that come before us but those are specifying regulations related to the l cap not just the local control
3:18 am
funding formula but the plan. so we need to know more about that as we monitor the regulations. and loose we talked about how we want to develop a more robust budget development plan we've had for years this calendar that talks about when the budget s are due but we want to incorporate into that the cap & as we develop our budget what we need to do to comply with those new requirements and this new way of doing budgeted. that's the end of the report >> any other announcements future meetings? yes >> i have 3 quick announcements
